Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery removes cataracts from an individual’s eyes and restores vision. Dr. Brent Bellotte, the leading cataract surgeon at the West Boca Eye Center, can exam your eyes and determine if cataract eye surgery is the right option for you.  Currently Dr. Brent Bellotte uses the PanOptix lens designed for today’s active lifestyles, screen viewing, and high-quality distance vision in a range of lighting conditions. This new lens has a design optimized for intermediate vision without compromising near and distance vision.
